Mike Fahey will cover a history of attempts to predict SCA and their failings, new techniques that leverage cognitive computing to improve SCA prediction, plus the potential impact on healthcare reimbursement.

Presenter 2: Cara Samia (Product Development Director, Best Doctors)

“Instant online access to reliable answers about medical conditions”

72% of internet users look online for health information. There are significant concerns with online health information’s reliability, validity, availability and accuracy. People still want to speak with a trusted resource – their physician. The problem is time and accessibility. Patients will often have to wait a few days to receive their specific answer.

Cara Samia will review how the Asklepius product powered by IBM Watson aims to provide Best Doctors Members with instant access to reliable answers about their medical conditions.”
